Chicago Union Station Skylight Renovation Underway!

The Chicago Union Station Skylight Renovation is currently underway! Our team of architects and engineers are providing Structural and A/E services for the restoration of the skylight at the Great Hall alongside Goettsch Partners, Berglund Construction, and ESD (Environmental Systems Design, Inc.). The $22M project includes transparent, high-efficiency glass panes that will increase natural light into the historic Great Hall; new steel structural framing to support the new skylight system and access platforms, repair water damage to the roof; and will introduce a new drainage design and maintenance system to prevent leaks. Prior to design, an extensive investigation and structural analysis of the existing conditions was performed. Click here to read more about the project and view photos.
